WHITTON Deaths - August to December 1868

WHITTON Deaths - August to December 1868

First time poster to this list, so please bear with me.....

I am researching the WHITTON family in Beverley, and am currently working on Beaumont Sharp WHITTON b1843. It seems that his first three children - Frederick b1865, Adeline/Adelaide b1866, and Isabel b1868 - all died within the four months between 20 August and 5 December 1868. Obviously a real disaster overtook the family, and I could likely find-out more by purchasing the appropriate Certificates. But in the interim, I wondered however whether any Beverley expert on the list might know of any issue around this time in this area - smallpox, typhoid, etc - which might add to my research, please? I've tried googling, but nothing emerges.....

Thanks for your consideration
